    Rudy Maxa's World: The Taste of Japan RUDY MAXA'S WORLD: THE TASTE OF JAPAN takes an in-depth look at the places in Japan that many visitors miss, as well as the food that makes Japanese cuisine one of the world's most admired. Along with Tokyo-born, Washington, D.C. restauranteur Daisuke Utagawa, host Rudy Maxa tours Tokyo, the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, and the southern, subtropical island of Kyushu. Along the way, they pay special attention to local producers of such Japanese cuisine as Wagu beef, ramen, sushi, black pork, rice, pasta and vinegars, and discuss how the cuisine ties in centrally with Japanese culture. In the one-hour special, Rudy goes beyond the more heavily touristed cities of Tokyo and Kyoto and shows the range of climates and attractions across the country. While eight feet of snow lined the roads of Hokkaido, where ramen reigns, it was palm trees and cherry blossoms on Kuyshu, where visitors relax by being buried up to their necks in sand made hot from natural springs. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    In Our Son's Name Phyllis and Orlando Rodriguez's lives shatter with the death of their son, Greg, who dies with thousands of others at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Instead of seeking revenge, the grieving couple begin a journey of reconciliation that transforms their lives. Their odyssey thrusts them reluctantly into the public eye as they speak out against war in Iraq and Afghanistan, oppose the death penalty for 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, and befriend his mother. Seeking to understand the nature of violence, Phyllis and Orlando engage in an emotional dialog with men incarcerated at Sing Sing prison for violent crimes, who themselves seek reconciliation. Over time they reach a new understanding of their rebellious son. Interviews, verite footage, and striking archival images create a a subtle, profound story told with disarming candor -- a response to violence that challenges conventional concepts of justice and healing. Shadd Maruna, Dean of the Rutgers University School of Criminal Justice said about the film: "I watched this powerful and healing documentary in a lecture theater filled with utterly transfixed undergraduates - literally the 9/11 generation - and you could have heard a pin drop in the room. None of us could help but be moved, even transformed, by Phyllis and Orlando's remarkable courage and dignity." duration 56:46   SRND51 TVG
